Breast Cancer Awareness Activities and Events Sponsored by Saint Barnabas Medical Center

This October, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) and the Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center are once again partnering with The Mall at Short Hills to raise awareness for breast health. The Faces of Breast Cancer is a striking display that will be located in Grand Court through October 30, 2019. It showcases the powerful stories of women who received their care at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and reinforces the partnership with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey — the state’s only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Saint Barnabas Medical Center is also partnering with 60 stores throughout the mall to display valuable breast health tips.

In addition, Saint Barnabas Medical Center is holding a “Pink Lips Challenge”; a fun way to remind your loved ones to get their mammogram. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Take a picture with your pink lips
  2. Blow a kiss to someone you love by sharing your post and tagging them, and reminding them it’s #TimeToMammo

And, most importantly, schedule your mammogram at www.rwjbh.org/timetomammo.

On October 10, 2019, The Cancer Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center invites you to “What’s New in Breast Cancer Treatment”, an opportunity to hear from a multi-disciplinary team of physicians and staff regarding the most up-to-date and late-breaking breast cancer information. The program begins at 6:00 pm at the hospital, 94 Old Short Hills Road, Livingston. While the program is free, registration is required by calling 973-322-2671.

The sixth annual “The Fashion for the Pink Crusade” will be held on October 17, 2019 at 6:30 pm at The Park Savoy Estate, 236 Ridgedale Ave, Florham Park. This event features an elaborate cocktail reception, prizes and raffles, and runway style fashion show presented by Bloomingdale’s, The Mall at Short Hills. Proceeds benefit the breast program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and the Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center.
